Glimpses From a Visit to Orkney in Summer 1995

Country: Alemania
Year: 1995-2020
Duration: 4'
Direction: Ute Aurand

16mm, transfer DCP. Silent

Supported by “Margaret Tait 100”
Ten filmmakers and artists were asked in 2019 to make a film dedicated to the Scottish filmmaker Margaret Tait. “In summer 1995, I visited Margaret Tait in Orkney. She had her studio in an old Kirk (Church), but we watched many of her 16mm films in her living room at home in Cruan. One day we went out filming some titles from her film script "Video Poems of the 90’s" like Lapping Water, Turning the Page and Rust Everywhere. In Glimpses From a Visit to Orkney in Summer 1995 you see these images next to images I just filmed during my visit, like Margaret drinking tea. Now twenty-five years later, I looked at all my Orkney-footage for the "Margaret Tait 100" project and remembered the abstract colors I had filmed for another film, but never used.” — Ute Aurand

Ute Aurand

Ute Aurand (Germany, 1957) has been a central figure of Berlin’s experimental film scene since the 1980s and is one of the most significant filmmakers active in the 16mm diary and portrait tradition today. As a film programmer, she has championed work by women filmmakers, often showing her films in dialogue with those of fellow filmmakers and friends. Together with Renate Sami, Aurand organized the legendary screening series FilmSamstag (1997-2007).
